Summer Skincare


 Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser
This is one of my all time favourite cleansers, thick and creamy enough to really get off the tough stuff (Estee Lauder Double Wear, I’m looking at you!) but leaves no residue and cheap as chips. My only bug bear is the smell, it smells like suncream. Some of you will love it but I really don’t, I’m told there’s a Radiance version that smells like Liz Earle however (green tube) so I will get that next time but I would put up with the scent for the price and the fact that it does the job.

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Foaming Cleanser
If I’m looking for a slightly cleaner feeling I will use this foaming wash as my second cleanse but more often I use it on evenings when I’m not wearing makeup and in the morning. It does exactly what it claims to, it foams and leaves you feeling clean but you don’t have that squeaky, tight feeling that so many find uncomfortable. My skin is oily so I can’t tell you it’s super hydrating but it’s sure not drying.

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Serum
The most velvety serum I’ve ever used, it absorbs super fast, is so light but leaves a layer of softness behind that I’ve never experienced with any other product. The Skin Perfection range is aimed at those in their 20s/30s that don’t yet need full blown anti aging products but still want to improve their skin. For that in between phase where your breakouts have subsided but you’re not quite reaching for the botox and you just want everything to look more even and Cheryl Cole-like.

L’Oreal Skin Perfection Day Cream
Much the same as the serum this is velvety to apply and very light yet hydrating. I tend to use day creams at night because I find night creams to heavy for my oily skin. This one is perfect and contains no SPF so still allows my skin to breathe while I sleep – very important if you’re considering using any product designed to be used in the daytime at night as SPF sits on your skin and can cause breakouts if you never give yourself a break from it.

Sanctuary Peptide Repair Eye Cream
This has been the eye cream I’ve used consistently for 6 months and I’m only just coming to the end of the jar now so although it’s a little pricier for the drugstore is lasts SO long and really feels like a treat for my under eyes. It’s very heavy so if you’re used to a gel or a lighter formula this may not be for you but I feel like a thicker cream does more for my sleep deprived Mummy eyes and they can use all the help they can get.

NUXE Reve De Miel Lip Balm
An absolute holy grail products of mine that I’ve already chewed your ears off about enough already. I even bought the tube version to keep in my handbag to top up on the go, it’s so good. It smells like honey, feels like a mask for your lips and is the ONLY think that can keep mine soft and help avoid that sore, chapped feeling whatever the weather. If you have dry/flaky lips it’s worth it’s weight in gold!

    I’m using The Superdrug Radiance cleanser at the moment it’s really good, scents a little strong but I love that I can use it over my eyes and it not sting

    Superdrug have some fab skincare bits in their own lines. I love their deep clean range! Really helped to clear up my skin at the beginning of the year and I havenโ€™t stopped using it since!

    Hi, I use the S. Spa petide eye cream too, and if you want a light yet silky night cream you might like their Night concentrate. Smells divine too!!

    I’ve been meaning to pick up the Superdrug Hot Cloth cleanser for a while but I’ve been working through the Botanics Cleansing Balm for what seems like ages and it’s still only half done! Going to check out the L’Oreal serum too. Thank you!

    Oooh must try the Vitamin E cleanser, I’ve been looking for a good dupe of the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish for ages. I just bought a Nivea Micellar water cleanser, have you tried any of those before?

    Heard so many amazing things about Superdrugs hot cloth cleanser, I might have to give in and give it a go!

    I love everything Sanctuary Spa do, such an amazing brand and the smell, mmm, one of my faves!

    The upside of reading British bloggers’ picks when living in the States: I find lots of nifty products I wouldn’t have heard of.

    The downside of reading British bloggers’ picks when living in the States: I can’t find them in my stores. Hmph.
